Italian violinist & composer Laura Masotto has collaborated with film composer Roger Goula to create the track ‘Refugees’ a deep observation of the human condition in relation to the ongoing migrant crisis and part of her recent album WE: “Roger Goula and I have worked closely while composing and it feels like Frieder has continued the process with empathy. Frieder Nagel's rework both gave a new life to the piece but is also keeping a strong connection with the original work”, comments Masotto.
The italian composer and violinist Francesca Guccione debut album "Muqataea" is dedicated to the composers homeland Sicily and describes it through a point of view between reality and imagination. French imprint Whales Records by acclaimed pianist Julien Marchal releases a stunning rework compilation of Francesca Guiccone´s debut album Muqataea in 2022 including artists such as Robot Koch, Throwing Snow, Hélène Vogelsinger, Arandel and many more. Frieder Nagel´s rework of the track River at 6pm is a dark and melancholic trip to an imaginary shore - an ambient track about the subconscius as well as those human emotions, that lie hidden under the surface of our self-image.
